Both of theses Beemers are at the top of my list but it hard to choose a favorite. The drops are about the same except inverted drops are more fun. I like Kumbas loop better, i think that massive immelman beats the dive loop, kumbas zero g roll is awsome, but montu's bat wing beats the cobra roll. As for the corkscrews, they much better on an inverted. I guess ill go with montu, what do u think?

Personally, I think that they are two completely different coasters so it is hard to compare the two. I would say that Kumba is without a doubt my favorite sit-down multilooper ever (Hulk's ending just didn't do it for me), and Montu blew every other invert I have ever been on out of the water except for Nemisis.

I prefer Montu. The pacing on this coaster is wonderful. Also great about this ride is when you are going up the lift hill you can practically see the whole layout and your like..Dayuum, we are going through all of that. Again, I cant say enough about Montu. But I guess you can tell Im a Montu fan :)
Dayuum, Your HOT!

Kumba! My no.1 coaster. B&M's first Mega Looper, upon my first look at a pic on the 'net, immediately toppled SFMM Viper for my top coaster. The layout just blew me away.
Finally got a chance to ride Kumba just over a year ago. My first ride, I was screaming for joy and had a smile bigger than the Joker the whole run.
Going up the lift hill through the loop, sheer brilliance. Drop best sensation ever, Loop - like flying in a jet fighter, Dive Loop - rolling in space, Camelback Inversion or Zero-G Roll as it's called now - best inversion ever, dive & Cobra Roll - at loss for words, Interlocking Flat Spins, excellent hang-time. Smooth, yet extreme ride.
Kumba surpassed my already high expectations.
All this is why I rode Kumba 34, yes 34 times in my one and only visit to BGT!
Kumba is the best work of art I've ever seen. I've the best pics, the site is not there anymore. :-(
Montu is the best Inverted I've been on. Shame about the trimming though. Rode it 10 times.

I love Both coasters but i have to go with the Montu, Because it has different elements.It seems faster.And it goes underground.Kumba might, but theres no inversion peeking out of it like the Montu

Between Montu and Kumba, I would say Montu is better. Montu is more intense and smoother. Kumbe is a good coaster also!

Don't get me wrong Both are great coasters. But I am going to go with Montu.

I can't decide. Montu is a bit more smoother, but Kumba is more thrilling.

They are both great coasters, and they both are completely different so I dunno how to pick one. I guess I would have to go with Montu ( because I love inverted coaster ). Kumba is probably more thrilling and I like it a lot.

I'm going to pick Kumba as the winner. The Zero-G roll does it for me. Although for looks, Montu wins. After 4 consecutive rides on Montu I started to get sick,(maybe because it was in the morning and I hadn't eaten yet). I rode Kumba 15 times and got sick after the 3rd ride but contintued riding anyway just because it was so fun.
